I wish I could answer your question, but I do not use XPLANE11. Maybe someone who does will chime in soon. I know that it does work because we have many users using both.

Yes, installed and works fine with other ACARS systems, just not this one or Phoenix.

Hello

Another way to connect using X-Plane (PC or Mac) is to use the XACARS plugin (http://www.xacars.net).

XACARS is very basic; it connects, can read flight plans, will report position, and file a pirep when complete.

It is a very basic phpVMS client with no bells and whistles. It does not report flight configuration changes or landing rate (although it is logged).


I use it since for a Mac user, it is the only ACARS plugin that works on X-Plane on a Mac. It works for PC as well.

The xacars.ini file must have the following information to work on flydeltavirtual: enter your pilot ID and password.

Hope this helps ! No need for UPCIPC.



[server]

Address = http://crew.flydeltavirtual.org/action.php/acars/xacars/acars

PIREP = http://crew.flydeltavirtual.org/action.php/acars/xacars/pirep

FlightInfo = http://crew.flydeltavirtual.org/action.php/acars/xacars/data

User = DALxxxx

Password = your_password_here


[ACARS]

POSReportTime = 1

EnableLiveACARS = 1

EnablePIREP = 1

AutoPIREP = 1

Please note that if you have problems connecting with XACARS it is due to the address field in XACARS require https instead of http. (secured)

Therefore the address to insert in the XACARS.ini shown in the post above should be: (note the https)

[server]

Address = https://crew.flydeltavirtual.org/action.php/acars/xacars/acars

PIREP = https://crew.flydeltavirtual.org/action.php/acars/xacars/pirep

FlightInfo = https://crew.flydeltavirtual.org/action.php/acars/xacars/data
